@Ophelia I logged in just to question the absence of Sahadi's in the list. Now I need some.
What I want to know is: With an 18" waist, WHERE DO YOU KEEP YOUR INSIDES?
I can boil eggs perfectly, because I do it the Martha Stewart Way and she always does everything perfectly. ALWAYS.
But I hate peeling them so much that I just buy the ones at Trader Joe's. Plus, I don't even really like hard boiled eggs very much.
@yrouttasight I wore a beard of bees one year. It was AWESOME. I also wore a really lady like pink vintage dress from the 60s, with pink gloves, and pink shoes, and a bee hive hairdo. Maybe that's a good way to wear a beard without being offensive?
(I think I bought my fake bees on ebay or amazon? Beard was made of brown felt with hair ties to loop over my ears.)
@terrific I would spend it on an awesome pair of jeans and an awesome pair of boots. (Assuming jeans are work appropriate? I've always worked in creative jobs...) And then buy this jacket, for $79 which will make all of your old shirts look better. Only buy the black jacket though, the other colors look chintzy in real life. When you get the job, buy new shirts and sweaters.
@charmcity My dad is a big fan of "consumables." He doesn't need anymore STUFF, so he likes things he can eat and then it's gone. Fancy candy or pickles or booze or whatever.
@rimy I am making caramel apples TONIGHT. And I bought Halloween candy to make s'mores out of at my friend's mountain house this weekend. And apple cider for mulling. We're all going to have diabetes by Monday.
@frigwiggin I made kickass tomato sauce from the Frankies Spuntino cookbook, and I plan on cooking many many more things from that book AND THEN EATING THEM.
@ellebean My parents make them for us on special occasions. The only problem is, your clothes, your hair, and the whole house smell for the rest of the day.
One time a stranger asked my Mom if she worked at Dunkin' Donuts!
I am dying for any kind of fried dough at this point, but I had to "settle" for a couple of chocolate chip cookies.
Pitza Frites! Though they are not quite as big and are best covered in powdered sugar.
